Funding for integration projects

Applications for project funding are now welcome under the Nordic Council of Ministers' co-operation programme for the integration of refugees and immigrants.

In the spring of 2016, the ministers for Nordic co-operation decided to make the integration of refugees and immigrants a top priority. A co-operation programme has now been adopted and a pool of money earmarked for projects in all of the Nordic countries.

Purpose

The purpose of the programme is to support national efforts by bolstering Nordic co-operation on the integration of refugees and immigrants, by encouraging the countries to share experiences and by generating new knowledge.

The new programme outlines a series of milestones on the way to achieving this overall objective:

  • Spreading and sharing Nordic knowledge and experiences of integration
  • Bringing together the official agencies and stakeholders in the Nordic countries who deal with integration, including ministries, boards, official agencies, local authorities, regional authorities, practitioners, experts and civil society
  • Supporting ongoing integration work in the Nordic countries.
